creamy goat cheese bruschetta with roasted red peppers and fried capers

goat cheese bruschetta

How do you pronounce “bruschetta”?

Personally, I go back and forth between “bru-skeh-tah” and “bru-sheh-tah”.

The former is proper in Italian but the latter is more common here in the US.

Although that statement seems to be up for debate. Here’s a thread on Chowhound that had me chuckling:  How do you pronounce ‘bruschetta’?

However, no matter how the sounds come out of my mouth, I enjoy putting any type of bruschetta back into it.

Especially this one.

I added some cream to my goat cheese to make it more creamy and smooth and less crumbly and goat-y. Diced some roasted red peppers, fried me up some capers and zested me some lemon.

This was our snack yesterday afternoon. A bit too early for wine but a crisp white would have been pretty perfect.

    I say “bru-sheh-tah” but my boyfriend is Italian and I just asked him. He confirmed it’s supposed to be “bru-skeh-tah” just like you said! But exactly, who cares.. it’s got goat cheese on it! Yummm!

    Well when you first look at it, it looks like Bru-Sh-etta. But look again and it’s spelled with “sch” so think about “school”. People usually don’t pronounce “sh-ool” they pronounce “sk-ool” :). Anyway this recipe looks fantastic!

    Hi Kristy!

    I am not a big fan of peppers or anything the least bit spicy, but I think these would be great with tomatoes and goat cheese! As for the pronunciation… hmm… I think I’ve always said Bru-Sh-etta and I am not in the United States lol. It must just be the Italian way to call it bru-Sk-etta

    I’ve never tried goat cheese but I’ve always been afraid it would taste “goat-y” lol. I love how you put that and mixing it with cream might help me the first time I try it I think. As far as how I pronounce bruschetta, I actually say “bruh-sk-etta”.
